The Sports Journalists’ Association of Nagpur (SJAN) has appealed sports fraternity, cricketers and others to come forward with financial assitance to help late journalist Ruchir Mishra’s family. A member of the SJAN, Ruchir Mishra, senior sports journalist from The Times of India, passed away on May 4, 2021, due to COVID-19 at a private hospital in Nagpur.

Ruchir, 43, was a very popular sports reporter in the cricket fraternity. After playing a long innings of around two decades in sports journalism, Ruchir became victim of the dreaded COVID-19 virus. Before joining TOI in 2008, he had also worked with Dainik Bhaskar and The Hitavada. A resident of Godhani, Ruchir is survived by wife Nitu, 13-year-old daughter Kuhu, seven-year-old son Kabir, parents, five siblings and host of relatives to mourn the loss.

In a press release issued by the SJAN secretary Suhas Nayse on Sunday, he has appealed to the society particularly the sporting fraternity and cricketers to donate generously and help Mishra family in this hour of big crisis.
